Yesterday Lloyd Blankfein finally came clean to us re: who he works for. And I bet a lot of you probably then made what you thought was the logical conclusion that LB and his people were set for life, what with the Big Guy on their side, and could sit back and take it easy. The BG's got this money making thing covered, right? Wrong! Turn's out God's something of a slave driver and you want to know another thing? No matter how many clients his little worker-bees front run? It's never enough.
"The market is still difficult and turbulent," Blankfein said at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch banking and financial services conference. "We are not lounging around in our sunglasses basking in our certain future," he said. "We stay very close to our clients."
